Caleb sure picked a bad time to start a new job. New partner announcement season was one of his most favorite times of the year. I’m sure he’s celebrating the start of this season from afar.

Today, BDO USA announced that 37 new partners will be admitted to the partnership, effective July 1.

The 2018 class is a tad larger than last year’s class of 36 but a couple partners short of 2016’s 39 promotions.

Sixteen of the new partners are in the assurance practice, nine are in tax, another nine are in advisory, and three are in the firm’s national office. Of the 37, less than 10 are women.

So, without further ado, here’s your 2018 BDO USA partner class:

  • Eric Base (Dallas – Assurance)
  • Richard Black (Detroit – Assurance)
  • Kim Bolte (Raleigh – National Human Resources)
  • Marie Burzo (Woodbridge – Assurance)
  • John Cuesta (New York – Assurance)
  • Tony Enlow (Dallas – Advisory)
  • Jerry Fish (Chicago – National Tax Office)

  • Bikky Shrestha (Anchorage – Assurance)
